Adding to its recent award recognitions, the Graphical Analysis Pro app was named a 2021 Best Tool for Remote and Blended Learning by Tech & Learning. The app, which engages students in advanced data analysis from biology, chemistry, middle school science, and physics experiments, was recognized in both the secondary and higher education categories.
“Despite the many challenges schools have had to face this past year, technology continues to be one of the key drivers for innovation,” said Tech & Learning Group Publisher Christine Weiser. “The winning products recognized have supported continuous instruction throughout the pandemic, and we expect this momentum to continue into next year and beyond.”
Tech & Learning launched the Best Tools for Remote and Blended Learning award, a new offering in its legacy Awards of Excellence program, this year to recognize technology solutions that support educators as they deliver engaging instruction remotely. Judges deemed the winning products—including Graphical Analysis Pro—as standouts for boosting retention and collaboration in remote and hybrid learning environments.
The Graphical Analysis Pro app, which expands upon the award-winning Vernier Graphical Analysis app, lets educators and students easily insert, view, and sync a video to sensor data for analysis. It also features the ability to perform live experiments and share data over the internet in real time. Whether learning happens remotely or in person, students can experience real experiments and think critically as they analyze and graph data, which helps them connect abstract concepts to real-world applications.
Graphical Analysis Pro includes a wide variety of experiment videos synced with sample data and complete student instructions that cover common topics in biology, chemistry, middle school science, and physics. The app is compatible with most devices used in schools, including Chromebooks, providing flexibility and cost savings as students can use their own devices for analysis while learning remotely.
“Graphical Analysis Pro gives students access to the data they need to work on important skills and process information critically,” said Ryan Carlson, an instructor of AP Biology, biology, and marine biology at Richmond-Burton High School in Richmond, IL. “And, it allows them to collaborate and discuss data together at the same time regardless of whether they are in person or at home. Even after COVID, Graphical Analysis Pro will continue to be an excellent resource if students aren’t able to come to school on any given day for whatever reason.”
In addition to being a 2021 Best Tool for Remote and Blended Learning, the app was also recently named a winner of the Tech & Learning Best of Show at ISTE 2020 Awards and the platinum winner in the STEM/STEAM App category of THE Journal’s 2020 New Product Awards.
